Raptors are notoriously hard to identify, even if seen well. Contrary to expectation, it is actually easier to identify raptors in flight, rather than perched, and it is fortunate that most raptors are usually seen in flight! This will be the ultimate flight-identification guide to Western Palearctic raptors. The thorough text will cover every plumage and age in breathtaking detail, and each species will be illustrated with a range of photographs covering all the principal plumages.
